Had to get there early to find parking. This was mid November and temps were at a high of 80. This area is hot and you will definitely need a lot of water. My preference would be to go counter clockwise so you’ll end up with the shade at the last portion of the loop. Some nice views at the peak. No sight of tarantulas or condors on this trip. The scenery is ok. It wouldn’t be fair to compare it to the more popular national parks. But its quiet and peaceful. Best to go during the winter months or early spring. I would not attempt it during the summer months, unless that’s your thing. The sun is my kryptonite.★ ★ ★ ★
Pinnacles Bear Gulch, Rim, High Peaks Trails
Connected some trails I haven't taken yet. Started at Bear Gulch, worked through the caves then up across the Rim and High Peaks trails to come down Condor Gulch Trail. No condors today!
